Welcome to the home of Hybrid

Hybrid is a multi platform (Linux/Windows/MacOS (non-ARM)) Qt-based frontend for a bunch of other tools which can convert most input formats to common audio & video formats and containers, see feature list for details.

Hybrid is intended for advanced users.
It's not intended to be a tool used by everyone.
If you don't know the basics about containers, video formats, etc. Hybrid is not meant for you.
